Kink Level- None
Series- FBI/US Attorney #3
Reviewed by Anne
Julie James should be not quite hot enough for me. But what she might lack in heat, she makes up for with cleverness. Seriously. Kyle Rhodes, AKA the Twitter Terrorist refers to Rylann Piece, Assistant US Attorney, as Prosecutrix Pierce. She thinks of him as Smug Dimples – a name she gave him when they met in a bar 9 years ago. Their attraction was immediate then, and it returns in force when Rylann unexpectedly finds herself standing in a courtroom, subbing for another lawyer, recommending Kyle’s release from prison after time served.
She might be tempted to act on this attraction, but when Kyle turns out to be a witness in another case she’s handling, she needs to set attraction aside and be a responsible adult acting like the professional she is. And that’s one of my favorite things about this book. They know they’re attracted to each other, but they don’t cross lines they shouldn’t cross. Thankfully, the case doesn’t last forever, and then things get really interesting.
What I enjoyed most about this book was the cute and sarcastic humor. I also liked that they felt like real people. They had friends. Life was messy. They were there for each other. Yep. Another no conflict/no villain contemporary. Hooray!
One final word. This is the 3rd in this series. I think it would stand on it’s own just fine, though there are several characters in common. The other books are really good, though, so I’d recommend reading in order.
